The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently announced the voluntary recall of Fuji Food Products, Inc. ready to eat salads, sushi and spring rolls sold in Trader Joe’s and other retailers in the Upper Midwest and East Coast states due to a potential Listeria monocytogenes contamination concern.

Fuji Food Products CEO Farrell Hirsch, said, in an FDA press release, “As responsible processors of safe, fresh food for nearly 30 years, we are addressing this problem vigorously and we apologize to those who are affected by it.” Hirsch continued, “We will restart operation only after we have eliminated the cause and the FDA certifies that our facility is once again free of possible contamination.”
